After delivering a doom-laden Budget, Jeremy Hunt may expect few people to give him the time of day.
So it is just as well the Chancellor wore two watches while delivering his controversial Autumn Statement on Thursday.
He appeared to have an IWC Schaffhausen strapped on to his left arm. Founded in 1868, the luxury Swiss brand is a favourite of F1 star Lewis Hamilton.
Mr Hunt’s model, which is thought to be a Portofino Automatic, is priced at £4,450.

On his left hand he appeared to be wearing a £4,450 IWC Schaffhausen watch. On his right, he looked to have an Apple Watch
Zoomed-in images revealed a diary reminder for 4pm that read: ‘Travel to HoC (House of Commons)/Today (Radio 4) prep/Editor calls x3.’
The watch has gilt hands, a black alligator leather strap and is one of the firm’s bestsellers.
Adrian Hailwood, of watchcollecting.com, said: ‘As luxury watches go, it is quite understated.’
Meanwhile, on the Chancellor’s right wrist is what appears to be an Apple Watch – and he continued to wear both later in the day to meet pupils at St Jude’s Church of England Primary School in south London.

Mr Hunt was previously seen wearing a Fitbit, a gadget which tracks activity levels, during his time as Health Secretary.
